If Muslims were the dominant percentage of people who had answered the questions about Israel in the affirmative, one could have never arrived at such high figures. Yet there is no doubt and the few studies available show it also, that the major non-selective immigration from Muslim countries has brought with it a percentage-wise higher number of anti-Semites and also more extreme ones.
The 150 million Europeans who believe that Israel is committing genocide against the Palestinians are predominantly native ones. This claim is not only absurd to the extreme, but also highly slanderous. During the two years from the end of 1941 until the end of 1943 in the extermination camps Treblinka, Belzec and Sobibor alone, 2 million people – mainly Jews – were murdered by the Germans. The technology of genocide has ‘advanced’ greatly since Germany’s mass murders. If these genocidal accusations against Israel were true, the last of Palestinian adults and children would have been murdered long ago.
In reality, the number of Palestinians has continued to increase greatly in the last decades. Palestinian children are born in Israeli hospitals and sick ones are treated by Israeli doctors.
In 2007, Gunnar Heinsohn and Daniel Pipes compared all global conflicts since 1950 that had more than ten thousand casualties. There were 67 of them. The Arab-Israeli conflict came in 49th place. The number of deaths in some of these other conflicts is several tens of times as much. Yet, the many anti-Semites of the Israel-hating type in Europe have succeeded in demonizing Israel.
The Lawfare Project urges all lawyers and legal experts to sign onto the following letter, which calls upon the EU to revoke its recent directive regarding Israeli settlements.
Composed by Ambassador Alan Baker, head of the International Division of the Legal Forum for Israel, the letter will be sent to Catherine Ashton, foreign affairs head of the EU, as well as to the foreign ministers of the 28 members of the EU.
For this letter to have maximal effect, it is vitally important to attach as many signatories as possible.
Please do not reply to this email.
In order to ensure that your signature is attached to the letter, please send your response to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, title, and contact information.
If possible, please also forward the letter to colleagues and acquaintances and encourage them to sign.
The letter will be sent in the coming days in view of the urgency of the issue.
The anti-Israel “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions” movement presents itself as a grassroots cause, but is that really the case?
A new reportby the watchdog group NGO Monitor suggests otherwise.
Rather, many BDS activist groups are getting secret funding from the powerful European Union, in direct contravention with the EU’s supposed philosophy of “supporting peace and democratic development.”
To cite just one example from the report, one group called the Coalition of Women for Peace (CWP) received $470,000 in taxpayer funds from a branch of the EU.
NGO Monitor notes that CWP has partnered with groups whose “protests have often turned violent,”and its activists have been seen participating in pro-Palestine demonstrations, carrying the flags of a terrorist group.
The facts clearly demonstrate that either the [EU] officials involved were unaware of the groups chosen to receive taxpayer funds, or that they chose to promote NGOs that fuel the conflict and promote confrontation, under the façade of ‘non-violence.”
In one of the most foolish and self-defeating decisions in recent memory, the British government has banned us from entering the country.
Our message of free speech and equality of rights for all before the law is too hot for them. But just last week they let in a Saudi imam who has said: “Devotion to jihad for the sake of Allah, and the desire to shed blood, to smash skulls, and to sever limbs for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion, is, undoubtedly, an honor for the believer.” (…)
We will have to hire a top British legal team that can navigate through all the roadblocks and obstacles that the Home Office puts up.
It’s going to cost us upwards of $25,000.
Can you help? This cause is larger than just the two of us. Everyone who speaks out against jihad and Islamic supremacism will ultimately be targeted in the same way.
If we don’t make a stand and overcome this now, the foes of freedom will be bolder than ever to pick us off, one by one, and impose their sinister agenda.
Phillipe Karsenty was convicted of defamation by what passes for a Court in France for having the effrontery of revealing the fraud of the Al Dura affair and attacking the lies of the producer of the infamous child killing fraudulent video Charles Enderlin and the state owned France 2 TV News channel.
This is Kafkesque. Doubtless this travesty of justice will be appealed. The stain of this court ruling is on the honor of France for this calumny. But then think of the Dreyfus affair. After three trials it was left for the President of France to ‘pardon’ Capt. Henri Dreyfus for the sin of being Jewish and set up by an anti-Semitic French General Staff. The irony in the Karsenty case is that both he and Enderlin are Jewish.
In a recent speech about the future of Western civilization, Geert Wilders singled out Israel for praise and attention:
In the coming weeks and months, I will try to see as many patriot leaders in Europe as possible. And I always ask them for their views on Israel. Because Israel is the litmus proof.
The Jewish people did exactly the opposite of what the Europeans did after the Second World War. They drew the right conclusion. They realized that without a nation-state of their own there could be no safety for their people.
Without a nation-state, without self-governance, without self-determination there can be no security for a people nor preservation of its identity. This was the insight that led the Zionists to strive for the re-establishment of the state of Israel. Theodore Herzl said that there had to be a Jewish state in order to ensure – I quote – “a new blossoming of the Jewish spirit.” – end of quote.
Indeed, a soul needs a body.The spirit of a people cannot flourish outside the body of the nation-state. The nation-state is the political body in which we live. We must preserve and cherish it. So that we can pass on to our children our national identity, our democracy, our liberty.
My friends, what we need today is Zionism for the nations of Europe. The Europeans need to follow the example of the Jewish people and re-establish their nation-state.
And that, my dear friends, is why every patriot, apart from being a democrat, by definition also has to be a true friend of Israel. A patriot cannot be anti-Semitic.
In the first half of the 1980s, the journalist and philosopher Jean-Francois Revel published his book, “How Democracies Perish.” While Revel was referring to the conflict between the West and the Soviet regime, his statements are also appropriate for any sort of totalitarianism, including the Islamic version.
One could paraphrase Revel’s statements by saying that the conflict between Islam and the West is like a soccer game in which one team disqualifies itself from going past the half-way line while the other plays freely inside its rival’s 18-yard box. While Islam treats its rivals (including those who pose no active danger to it) as threatening its very existence and works for their destruction, the West treats subversive elements who actively endanger its existence as mere rivals with whom it has a simple disagreement, no more.
The outcome of this essential difference between these systems is that compared with totalitarian regimes, democracies are far less capable of defending themselves against enemies from within. Islam is exploiting this to the hilt in both the spreading of global terrorism and the creeping takeover of the West.
